Dragon test by xHideFromTheSunx Dragon test by xHideFromTheSunx
Was a lovely sunny day, I could not bear the idea of being sat indoors so I went outside with watercolours etc and a book by Bob Eggleton:heart: I really love his technique so I tried it out with one of my dragons:la:

This is watercolours and coloured pencils on A4-ish watercolour paper (or it may have been acrylic paper... fail.) Took me about a day to complete but I'm notoriously slow :C

I left all of the messy bits and mistakes on there 'cause it's only a test, really:meow:

:iconflowerdanceplz:Like my page on:iconfbplz:acebook and I'll give you cyberhugs!: [link]: :iconflowerdanceplz:



I can't stop you from posting this somewhere else, but have some respect - don't alter this in any way or claim that it's yours. Or I will find you. And I will be ANGRY.:dummy:

I wanna paint in his style too, like bad.
Just nervous to even start!!
What is so awesome about gouche??
Some ppl I talked to said it's srsly just like watercolors.
But Eggleton talks it up hxc in the book.

Daw, well your dragon is very cute and pretty.

Ahh don't be nervous, just go for it!:la: You cannot learn if you do not try:nod:
I have no idea what is awesome about gouache as I have not used it before:o I think maybe Bob uses it for a rougher looking texture?

Thank you:la::huggle:
